Valve's Index Headset will be the first VR platform to support VurtualLink

The first VR headset to support single cable connectivity.



Read more about Valve's Index Headset supporting VirtualLink.

This dongle seems the wrong way round, why would you want 3 long cables coming from your headset to your PC with just a short thick annoying dongle right at the end? Surely you'd want the 3-way bit quite close to the headset with a single long Type-C cable going to your PC. They could have at least put a female Type-C receptical on for other cables or something

Is that picture just a placeholder?

The female end looks far too small/thin to support 3 connections. To me it looks like a single USB to USBC connector.

Maybe it's a single cable to a dongle which is either VirtualLink or triple cable.

"This adapter cable features the same quick connect design used by the Valve Index Headset tether to replace the standard three-port (DisplayPort, USB, power) connection cable."

Could be either, really.

Oh after looking at the pinout it's kinda obvious why it can't output to a female receptacle, the usual USB2 pins are swapped for USB3 so most Type-C cables will have USB2's 1 unshielded twisted pair rather than the 2 shielded differential pairs used for USB3 signals on those lines/pins. Maybe this is a triple standard Type-C connector(DP alt mode(inc TB3), USB3.x and USB power Type-C ports) to virtuallink? Or maybe this is just a place holder image.
